Wheelwriter 6 typewriter hammer no longer strikes

It is pretty common for the pad on the solenoid to strike the keys wears out, and for the batteries to be dead for the memory. Your machine probably needs a good cleaning, oiling, and a new pad for the striker. about $100.00 in the shop.

Stuck in a Mode

These guys are repairers so they may have extra copies.
IBM's Typewriter's site also has manual for sale for less than $20.

The typewriter seems to have a bad ribbon cartridge or a bad typing wheel. Take each one out and try to see if it will type normal. If one does, then you know to replace it.

try turning the machine off put a SMALL amount of oil on the large round rod running across the typewriter manually push the print head left and right a few times to see if it will loosen up. The problem is usually caused be drying oil you may consider having it serviced by a pro.
